Wanderlust Festival Sunshine Coast 17′ With Aveda

And just like that our long weekend in the Sunshine Coast for Wanderlust Festival (Nov 9th-12th) has come to an end. As I sit in my office dreaming about my first early morning SUP yoga experience I’m reminded of how thankful I am of all the opportunities I get. This year, Aveda was an official sponsor for the event and I couldn’t think of a better brand to align itself with the festival focused on the core message of mindful living.

The weekend promised a variety of activities, talks and experiences for all age groups and even catered for this heavily pregnant girl! I brought one of my best friends up with me for a weekend of pampering and relaxation. Each day we were spoilt with an appointment at the Aveda Beauty Bar; so having fabulous looking hair wasn’t a concern of ours but rather what new activities we were going to try.


Morning yoga sessions on the beachfront, trying yoga on a stand-up paddleboard were just a few of the new experiences we tried and conquered. I know what you’re thinking, yes – I managed to do a warrior stance on the board without embarrassing myself with an accompanying splash in the lagoon. I would definitely love to come back next year sans pregnant belly and try some of the other activities like the aerial yoga and waterfall hikes that I sadly had to pass on for obvious reasons. When putting on sneakers becomes a chore and lower back pain becomes your BFF there is very little you can do besides enjoying the ride.


I’m sharing a few snaps from our weekend and my v-log; with a full demonstration on how my stylist Rory Calasse from the Mineral Lifestyle Salon team achieved my dream Cara Delevingne side-braid with Mohawk look. I couldn’t braid to save my life but I’m hoping you gifted individuals out there can recreate this look for an event from watching this!
